Sheryl Gwyther

Sheryl Gwyther’s mango-gorging, tree-climbing, pirate ship-building, book-reading childhood in Queensland’s tropical far north inevitably led to the best job ever – writing stories for the most important readers of all … kids. Her work includes adventure novel, Secrets of Eromanga, stories and plays in The School Magazine; chapter books Charlie and the Red Hot Chilli Pepper, Princess Clown and Ali Berber & the Forty Grains of Salt. Researching for her latest novel, Sweet Adversity led Sheryl on a merry dance into the Great Depression era, where she found Shakespeare, vaudeville theatre and a pair of dastardly villains to chill your bones.
